Reviewed 16 May 2013

It's all of tiles and mosaic, very colourful. Take the metro to Fontana station (green line) to get there.

“Find this place - it's amazing!”
Reviewed 12 December 2012

Off the beaten track and not open to the public as it's a private house but the ceramics on the exterior are truly impressive and different to the other Gaudi houses in the city.

“Halo effect”
Reviewed 16 November 2012 via mobile

I absolutely love Gaudi but this building is pretty ugly! If you are in the neighbourhood, great, but if not, make the effort to go elsewhere. I have given it a one star to compensate for the overstated, halo effect ratings. I'd give it a two and a half.

“Nice building”
Reviewed 23 July 2012

This building, which is easy to get to from Parc Guell, is really nice to look at and its just a shame that it isn't open. Worth seeing if you like other Gaudi buildings.

“Grand intricate building”
Reviewed 20 April 2012

One of Gaudi's lesser known, but I feel underrated masterpieces. Brilliant Morrocan / Islamic style. Unfortunately could not get a glimpse inside, as it is a private residence. The ppl who live here have no idea how lucky they are!
